- Sasha – Involv3r – Best House mix?
So had a week of listening to Sasha’s new Involver 3 and again he has produced something truly remarkably.Posted 4 years ago
So far all those crusty ravers, what is your favourite house mix CD?
I guess I`m talking things like Pete Tong’s Essential mix CD – Ian Ossia Renaissance CD and on.
Some great suggestions here, my kinda music. My go-to mix is still the Sasha Global Underground San Francisco, but I still hit the Northern Exposure series every so often.
More recently, the Sasha cover CD for Mixmag last year was excellent:
Also a big fan of Cattaneo, and Deep Dish have always put out consistently quality mixes.
Prog house is still what I end up going back to, despite loving lots of other types of music. You’ve just got to search a bit harder for the quality stuff these days. We were spoilt back in the 90s 🙂Posted 4 years agoteejayMember
There are some really good tracks on the Involv3r mix but I’m really disappointed by the way several of the mixes are put together. A couple of key clashes and too high levels on tracks being brought in, along with a lack of build in the mix make it not the piece of music it could have been. Sounds anal but it’s just not what you’d come to expect, especially as it was in production for so long….Posted 4 years agoNickSubscriber
Sasha seemed to capitalise on the dreary monotonous trancy prog house dirge that seemed to go with the drugs in the late 90s and is still playing the same old boring crap. Shame really as his earlier stuff from Shellys etc in the early 90s was great and he can mix.
Mountain People above sounds good, this is a mate of mine, he still regularly DJs in Glasgow (The Drake I think)Posted 4 years agosomafunkSubscriber
Used to like sasha a lot back in the early 90’s but he started to rely too much on the use of Ableton in his live sets which whilst it is a fantastic production tool i feel in a live setting it’s use is limited – we booked him a few years ago to headline an event we put on and to be honest his set was note and key change perfect but far too analytical and not fluid at all, i see from a recent RA interview he’s dropped his maven controller and is embracing Traktor which will hopefully re-establish him as a pioneer of live mixes, Ableton is great for creativity but for live use Traktor, especially if used with a suitable controller is an absolute blast to use and still gives you that feel of directing the music and the crowd.
If you want a few good live mixes then perhaps Mike Hulme @ Wickerman festival will satisfy you, mike is a very cool n’ laid back DJ, one we love for sure (we organise the dance tents at the festival)Posted 4 years agodoboMember
I’ve got the first involver and its pretty good and just bought a taster song on beatport from the latest involver.
This is a good one from a while backPosted 4 years ago
